    Gingrich asks Trump to create 'apprentice' program for poor schoolchildren

    "Really poor children in really poor neighborhoods have no habits for working and have nobody around them who works. So they literally have no habit of showing up on Monday. They have no habit of staying all day. They have no habit of I do this and you give me cash unless it's illegal," he explained last week in Des Moines.

    First Read - Gingrich asks Trump to create 'apprentice' program for poor schoolchildren

    I'm guessing they will be given the opportunity to clean toilets in the Trump Tower.

    Actually, I have no problem with kids working. I started in the workforce at 14 and have been working ever since.

    Although... I wish I would have listened to my HS football coach. I was a big kid...6'2" 270 lbs in 9th grade... I was playing LT/NG on the JV team. I told him I was quitting football so I could get a job and a car... he told me this. "Son, you have the rest of your life to work." He was right.

    It is a blatant lie. Either you guys know that or you are idiots. Which is it Counselor?

    One can work and get an education just fine. I agree not everyone can do it but most people can. Further You have no grounds to talk your cities education system is a blatant failure. Almost no one actually gets an education from your high schools.

    TEN (10) kids. TEN "apprentices". That's how many these two weasels say they're gonna help. (sorry weasels. I know you're just trying to do the same thing the rest of us are - make a living in spite of the obstacle course we affectionately refer to as the GPbP/Repub Party.

    Meanwhile, newt is still saying he wants to take jobs away from the working poor.

    GAWD - what a pair these two are.

    Bet their "meeting" was a real hoot. Both of them yammering on and on, neither of them able to get a word in edgewise.

    BTW, La Donald said "his people" had found out some really damaging stuff about our president that he would "soon" make it pubic. That was a long LONG time ago. So, where is it, D O N ?

    (Bet its in the same place as John McCain's knowledge of where bin Laden was hiding. Remember that he said he'd make it public as soon as we elected him prez? Thank you President Obama - for just getting the job done.)
